Dr. Gafanovich maintains the philosophy that a level of trust has to exist in order for healing to occur. Providing the best healthcare service is a priority, and Dr. Gafanovich and her staff want to make a difference in your life. Not all NYC doctors are the same, and of course their level of expertise and the quality of their services is not the same as well. Dr. Gafanovich not only has the proper training and skills, but she has the bedside manner to go along with it. Most New Yorkers will find this refreshing; it’s hard to understand this philosophy if you have never been treated by a doctor who makes their patients their primary concern.

Too often doctors focus on treating the cold or disease without considering other factors that lead up to it. Many diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure are not only linked genetically to a person; they are also linked to the way they live. Dr. Gafanovich works with patients to identify the stress factors that cause unhealthy habits that lead to serious diseases. She educates patients not only on how to live a healthy life but also how to enjoy life. Humanistic living is primary focus of her practice. Her patients appreciate having a top ranked and respected doctor improve not just their health, but their lifestyle.

The minute you meet your doctor, you will begin to understand why so many people are excited about coming here. Dr. Gafanovich is a respected and educated physician in the NYC area, and she is available to see you as a patient.
